What you can expect from your yoga holiday...

One of the Top 20 Yoga Retreats in the World...Named by the Times and The Guardian as one of the best in the World, Yoga Explorers' retreat to Tigmi has been running for 6 years and continues to be an international favourite. World-class yoga teachers and luscious food in this stylish boutique destination, set in the tranquility of a Berber Village with a backdrop of the Atlas Mountains and the distant twinkle of the ancient city, are what places this yoga holiday above the rest. 

Mouthwatering meals and enchanting surroundings... Seemingly endless and utterly delicious buffet breakfasts, with the best freshly squeezed orange juice we've ever tasted, mouth-watering fresh and healthy lunches, and 3-course sit-down dinners are prepared daily by Tigmi's resident chefs! Meandering corridors and courtyard paths lead through scented gardens and hidden courtyards to exquisite bedrooms, all comfortably furnished with air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms and specially made bath, shower and body products.

Transformational yoga... Two yoga classes with Lisa are offered each day, except for the rest day, on the fabulous rooftop yoga terrace. For any cooler evenings there is also a beautiful indoor studio. Lisa's classes are therapeutic, educational and person centred, reflecting Lisa’s passion that yoga should be a functional, practical, accessible and empowering practice of self enquiry. Each practice will have elements of slow and fluid breath led movement, longer held restorative postures, relaxation and meditation.

Spend your days between classes...

Discovering the grounds and relaxing by one of the pools... Lounge on the comfortable beds by one of two fabulous pools; explore the endless paths and corridors leading to scented gardens of citrus trees, roses, hibiscus and bougainvillea and hidden peaceful courtyards and terraces; or experience a true taste of Morocco with mint tea on the restaurant terrace.

Pamper yourself... Tigmi features a fabulous spa and hammam (traditional bath house), both of which use natural, chemical-free ingredients sourced nearby. Download our spa pricelist

Walking and exploring the local area... Beautiful and facinating walks can be taken in every direction from Tigmi. From a walk around the local village to the wide open terrain leading towards the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains. Tours can be arranged by the Tigmi team for half- and full-day trips. 

Visit the must see UNESCO world heritage site of the Medina (old city) of Marrakech... Take the free shuttle from Tigmi to the Medina of Marrakesh and experience the magic of the ancient city. Snake charmers, acrobats, musicians and story-tellers await you in the main square, Djemaa el Fna, while narrow streets lead into the labyrinth of souks, alive with colour and sound.  

Your teacher - Lisa Jones

Lisa Jones

My introduction to yoga came quite early as my dad was a dedicated yoga practitioner, although it wasn’t until I moved to Manchester in the early 1990’s that I started developing a regular practice, as it supported my body, mind and health throughout my career as a professional dancer.

After years of studying many different forms of yoga, including Iyengar, hatha, yin and meditation, I enrolled on my first teacher training course with Simon Low at The Yoga Academy, and became a qualified teacher in 2006.

Now, after 10 years of teaching yoga professionally, I lead a therapeutic, educational and accessible practice. I have a very down-to-earth approach to yoga and in the last few years I have been deeply influenced by my studies in embodiment, somatic movement, experiential anatomy and meditation which have enriched my life, my practice and my teaching. 

This has led me to develop a taught practice that is breath-led, fluid, explorative and playful. Moving slowly and mindfully to develop inner awareness and outward stability, the body grows stronger, healthier and more pliable whilst the mind becomes more peaceful and still. A shift from a state of tension to a state of relaxation is a very powerful catalyst for integration and change.

I teach classes and workshops in and around Manchester including The Life Centre. I also mentor new yoga teachers and trainee teachers and I am an external independent assessor for yoga trainings.
